Mar.13 (GMM) Paul Stoddart on Thursday admitted that Max Mosley's continuing role as FIA president would make his return to formula one as a team owner difficult.
The Australian, however, having sold his Minardi outfit to Toro Rosso (Red Bull) at the end of 2005, refuses to rule out buying into the pinnacle of motor racing again."I still love formula one," he told adrivo.com. "You never know what might happen."It was reported earlier this week that Stoddart even contemplated buying Super Aguri before the Dubai-funded Magma Group entered the frame.Stoddart, at Albert Park this weekend for the opening race of 2008, also applied for the twelfth team slot that should have been occupied this year by Prodrive.Referring to his political struggles as Minardi chief, he says of the primary obstacle: "Until Max Mosley goes, I'm going to have problems with the internal politics and I'm not going to feel comfortable in F1."Mosley's current tenure at the Paris body runs out next year, and the 67-year-old Briton has not ruled out contesting the elections again.
